La Mare de Larmes
Watercolour illustrations, torn and painted silk paper and stitch.
I love horses, and I made a series of drawings imagining what they would be like swimming underwater, their bodies supported by the water. This translated into a book, inspired by The Pool Of Tears in Alice In Wonderland, where she swims in a pool she has cried, alongside various animals. I preferred to use the french title because of the word "mare"; in english a female horse, in french a pool.
